AnyLogic Featured in Rail Application Text Book 05.02.2016 Rene Reiter

The Handbook of Operations Research Applications at Railroads (International Series in Operations Research & Management Science) is the first book to offer a complete spectrum of the role that operations research has played and can play in the improvement of North American freight railroads. It explores how decisions are made at railroads, contains examples of the mathematical programming formulations to the complex problems, and provides insights into real-world applications. AnyLogic is featured in two chapters: Simulation of Line of Road Operations and Terminal Simulation written by Roger Baugher, who has worked to apply Operations Research tools to railroads for over 40 years as both a railroad employee and consultant (B. Patty, Preface). Roger was instrumental in the development of Algorithmic Blocking and Classification (ABC) while at Norfolk Southern, was the first recipient of the Railroad Applications Special Interest Group (RASIG) Award for his contributions to OR in the railroad industry and is a Franz Edelman Laureate. In addition to Norfolk Southern, Roger Baugher applied his understanding of network optimization approaches to various forms of the transportation organizations, such as BNSF, American Airlines, Pacer Stacktrain, Conrail where he played an integral part in developing the Conrail Network Analysis Model (CNAM)

Improve Model Testing with One Simple Function 29.09.2015 Rene Reiter

Check out the latest blog post from my colleague and friend, Ben Schumann a senior modeler at decisionLab with a Ph.D. in Complex Systems Simulation. Moreover, as you know, Ben is a significantly experienced AnyLogic User, who works with diverse clients such as the MoD, Rolls-Royce or GSK. He handles project delivery from start to end, managing team members, and client communication. Dr. Schumann’s post asks a crucial question, “Are you testing your models?” If the answer is yes, he provides advice for better more efficient testing, and if not, let Ben share some advice on how. Go beyond traditional testing methods (i.e. visual, “traceIn” statements, analyze output data, apply dedicated unit testing) and create a structured, repeatable approach, or dedicated function. What Ben calls “The Magic Ingredient.” Find out about “The Magic Ingredient” and other ways to create personalized unit testing through Ben Schumann’s web page and the AnyLogic LinkedIn Users forum.
